Artist: Erland Dahlen
Title: Rolling Bomber
The first thing I noticed about the album is the sound – a thing of resonant spaces and warm velvety depths. Rolling Bomber was recorded over 3 days in February and April 2011, inside an abandoned coffee factory in Olso, a space Dahlen has utilised in the past. It consists of comparatively little – drums, obviously, subtle electrical fields, similar to something Helge Sten might eructate in his dreams, gamelan-like vibes, Dahlen’s other signature instrument the bowed saw here and there – but everything seems to levitate inside a wider field of force, the sounds expanding to the edge of your hearing. The timbre is largely a metallic one, yet there is a real tactility to the sound, as if you could clasp it to yourself.
